I first read this in a store that had a huge selection of wall sticker quotes for little girls, all were very mushy and beautiful. This was the only one for my new 4 lb boy in the NICU. Not funny at the time...but boy oh boy, did he grow to show me it is true.<3
Abandoned Michigan Central Railroad Station, Detroit, MI. It was so very beautiful....I can remember the long, long ride into the city from our farm. My Dad would put me on the train to go visit family in Indiana. What a sight to take in for a little farm girl. I remember those huge ornate columns inside...it was a work of art...
I wanted a small lightweight camera that I could easily take with me, but I was concerned that the controls would be hard to maneuver. This

On the set of I Love Lucy - TP, this one made me laugh out loud because I remember it was one where she was trying to save money by sewing her own dress and she was having a little trouble with that and fixing her own hair instead of having it done - very funny!!
Quotes I adore
I had to share this. This is Ping. He is very smart and very naughty He was a litter mate to my Gracie and full brother to my Lily. Mom kept him. How could she not?
Link: "What '90s Girls Never Realized About "A Little Princess" I remember this movie but I had forgotten how devastatingly sad it was! As an adult I'm not sure I could watch it.
#travelcolorfully “we wanted to evoke that bygone era when air travel was a bit more glamorous than it is today. but the really great thing about this picture was that it was taken on a set that was originally built for the hilarious  movie airplane! we had a lot of fun while we were shooting, trying to remember lines from the film—like ‘i am serious…and don’t call me shirley’—so it was a very charming day. some photographers feel that they get better pictures if they’re being forceful, but i find i take my best pictures when people are having a good time. ” —chris craymer
My mom passed away two and a half years ago. She used to send my brother and I cards whenever she went away on business trips and she’d sign every one the same way. I got this at Curious Tattoo in College Park, Maryland. Ryan did an amazing job reproducing my mom’s handwriting. I could not be happier with the way this turned out and I am excited to have a piece of her with me at all times.
A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents. Reading this just makes me want to do everything to be a better Mom. 1. My hands are small; please don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. My legs are short; please slow down so that I can keep up with you. 2. My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; please let me explore safely: don’t restrict me unnecessarily. 3. Housework will always be there. I’m only little such a short time—please take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly. 4. My feelings are tender; please be sensitive to my needs; don’t nag me all day long. (You wouldn’t want to be nagged for your inquisitiveness.) Treat me as you would like to be treated. 5. I am a special gift from God; please treasure me as God intended you to do, holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and disciplining me in a loving manner. 6. I need your encouragement, but not your praise, to grow. Please go easy on the criticism; remember you can criticize the things I do without criticizing me. 7. Please give me the freedom to make decisions concerning myself. Permit me to fail, so that I can learn from my mistakes. Then someday I’ll be prepared to make the kind of decisions life requires of me. 8. Please don’t do things over for me. Somehow that makes me feel that my efforts didn’t quite measure up to your expectations. I know it’s hard, but please don’t try to compare me with my brother or my sister. 9. Please don’t be afraid to leave for a weekend together. Kids need vacations from parents, just as parents need vacations from kids. Besides, it’s a great way to show us kids that your marriage is very special. 10. Please take me to Sunday school and church regularly, setting a good example for me to follow. I enjoy learning more about God. I know that when the kids are driving me crazy, I can sit down and read this and feel so much better! Where was this yesterday!?!?! :) *Feel free to print off and put on your fridge for a daily reminder of how to treat your kiddos! **A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents, by Dr. Kevin Leman
Beautiful shoulder piece. I hate my arms but worry a full or half sleeve will take me across the line from cool to butch as I'm not delicately-doll-like-of-feature. This could be the perfect workaround!
I am just so excited! I just got back from Bible study and found out the person I met 4 months ago came to accept Jesus as her Savior. I had one encounter with this person and never ran into her again. She was really depressed. I talked with her about Jesus (She wasn't a Christian). I offered to take her to my church just so she could see what it was like. She said she wouldn't know anybody but I said "you know me!" Just show love!! Also
'from a young age I was definitely imitating birds, but I didn’t know it at the time. This is what my parents tell me. Once I started making these weird sounds with my voice, they gave me this little flexi-disc of mouth sounds, like guys that could make odd sounds. I don’t know why they gave it to me, but that was one of my favorite records...' Mike Patton of Faith No More
When I was a little girl, I would often get frightened at night and read this verse. That was absolutely the greatest cure for my fear and continues to be such a comfort to me. The God of the universe will be with me, uphold me, and strengthen me. Wow! How could that not fix everything?
“This would be a man that loves going to work and does not dread it the night before. Upon entering the Magic Kingdom, one of the security guards said to the girl “Excuse me Princess, can I have your autograph.” I could see that the book was filled with children’s scribbles as the guard asked the same question of many little Princesses. The little girl could not get over the fact that the guard thought she was a real princess.”

So my best friend sent me this earlier. She never does deep emotional announcements or signs of affection. I was quite touched with the words, and then she told me it was because she could share her toilet humour with me. "True love is not having to hold your farts in anymore."
This is a very clever print ad. In my opinion what makes an ad interesting to look at is the way they tell the story. For this one, Levi's has come out with a jean that is similar to a guy's but now has a fit available for women. When I first looked at this picture, I thought she was in the same pair as he was. And then when I looked closer, I saw that she has her own pair on and she is just as big as one of his legs. It was very clever to me. #M2350

We want our baby girl Sadie to be very involved in our wedding, she is almost 8 months now. This photo brought tears to my eyes. I have always wanted a photo like one I remember from my parent's wedding album, a photo of their hands together with their rings. I feel like this one would be perfect for us. Let's see if we can get her little feet to stay still long enough to take it :)
This makes me so nostelgic. I remember my Grandmother's kitchen looking so much like this when I was growing up. The kitchen table is very similar to the one she had.

Oh my…I made these yesterday, will post a pic on my facebook….These were the bomb! I love chocolate but hubby doesn’t…BUT he said these were fabulous! The only deviation I did was add chopped pecans to the frosting. It was very German Chocolate Cake tasting, which is my favorite. This will be a regular treat for me. Since Sept. 28th, 2012 I have been eating a low carb, no gluten/grain diet AND COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! I have dropped several inches in my waist and went from a tight 12 to a 8!
Minus the sheep in the picture, this totally looks like our family border collie, her name was "Chip" and she was the sweetest dog I have ever had. She is my companion for most of my life and I miss her everyday. It feels so weird not seeing her still to this day. She always has a place in my heart!<3

"She Does Hair" lots of great ideas for doing a little girl's hair. I need to remember these because someday my daughter might not be tenderheaded.
This my friends is amazing! Few months back my back was tight, burning and just hurt. I was walking bent over like a frail 90 year old! Searching for a remedy I came across this blend of oils. Once I rubbed it on my back it was a miracle! I could stand up straight! Now, this didn't take away the muscle ache but it took away the radiating pain that was shooting down my legs! I can't say enough about this mixture of oils! Want to know more? Contact me. *These statements haven't been FDA approved*

This is so cute (September 2008....Upon entering the Magic Kingdom, one of the security guards said to Alli "Excuse me Princess, can I have your autograph." I could see that the book was filled with children's scribbles as the guard asked the same question of many little Princesses. Alli could not get over the fact that the guard thought she was a real princess.)
